A mysterious and mythical motorcycle racer, Luke (Gosling), drives out of a travelling carnival and whizzes through the backstreets of Schenectady, New York – where a chance encounter reconnects him with a former lover, Romina (Eva Mendes), who he learns has recently and secretly given birth to their son. The stakes rise as Luke’s newly-found criminal life, undertaken to support his young son, unites his path with that of idealistic young cop, Avery Cross (Cooper), who’s looking to quickly move up the ranks in a police department riddled with corruption, and the course of their lives is altered irrevocably.
